Favourite Scents of Summer

Every summer I have a dilemma as to what perfumes I want to try and buy. Well for me, a true keeper and an absolute favourite of mine is Diors new fragrance, Escale a Portofino. Its such a citrusy summer scent and one I will definitely buy again and again. My absolute favourite summer fragrance-I just adore wearing it!

My second favourite for summer is Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche, a totally different smell reminiscent of the original gorgeous Chance, but with a lighter summery feel to it!! Well, next summers fragrances are sorted-I just need inspiration for Autumn now!!

Dear Sharon Rose,
I can´t imagine leaving home in the morning without perfum! My favourite are: Aromatic, by Clinic; Bulgary por femme; and Eternity by Calvin Klein.
Kss

Hi tupersonalshopperviajero-great picks, Eternity is such a fabulous classic!!

Imelda Matt said...

Do you change your perfume every season? I'm a stickler for tradition and alternate between two scents.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Imelda-I would like to get a heavier scent for Autumn, so will shop around next month-I'm still in love with my Dior scent though, I've never really found a scent before that I want permanently, its divine!

Ida said...

I haven't smelled either of them, unfortunately, but I like to get the Limited Editions by Estee Lauder for each season. Now everyone's talking about Vera Wang's Princess, no? Haven't tested it, either. I am so behind on scents *lol*

Have a lovely day, Sharon!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ida-yes, its lovely to know what scents everyone likes, its inspiration for what I can try next!! Have a great day, Ida!

Charlotte said...

Hi Sharon! I did a little post about you and another girl. If you don't like anything I'm writing, just tell me.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi charlotte-this is so lovely of you-thanks ever so much for featuring me in your post!! have a wonderful day!!

I used to like Calvin Klein's Obsession for Men back in the day when fragrance didn't set my allergies off.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi wendy!! yes, a great classic fragrance. Thats a shame about how fragrances set off your
allergies:-(

Cate said...

Sharon, i love chanel chance eau fraiche too (and i have to admit i don't even know what original chance smells like...)!

Sal said...

I've always wanted to be a perfume girl, but just never found the right scent. I'm drawn to citrus, though, so perhaps I'll check out the Dior!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi cate-original Chance is just really more 'heavy' with the same trademark scent, both are gorgeous!!

Hi sal-oh, I do recommend the new Dior one-it makes you feel you are in Portofino, haha!!

MakeupByRenRen said...

sounds lovely! i want to try the dior because i love citrus smells

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

I've got to say, I've never tried them! I love the Dior ad though. I usually wear Just Cavalli, J'adore, Be Delicious and Noa. I want Pear and Daisy by Marc Jacobs though they are yummy!

Wendy said...

I don't wear perfume but I want to find a place to start. I must try some at Macy's or Nordstrom.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

i only recently began changing my perfumes based on the time of the year and it's one of my favorite traditions. i wear burberry brit for fall since it has a bit of a spice to it so i'll be busting it out in a few weeks :)

Always In Style said...

I noticed there are a lot of Italian Coast inspired scents out at the moment - that Dior one sounds delish, I'll have to try it!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ren-yes, it is so lovely!!

Hi fashion dreamer-I love J'adore too! I've got grapefruit by marc jacobs, but the scent fades very quickly!

Hi wendy-there are soo many gorgeous scents out there to try!!

Hi cupcakes and cashmere-I'll have to try out Burberry Brit, it seems a popular choice!!

Hi always in style-it is totally gorgeous, I adore it!!

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Ohhh no I don't want the scent to fade quickly! I knew they were too good to be true. Gemma should sooo not retire, but the new movie looks very promising

Sharon Rose said...

hi fashion dreamer-yes, it is a shame about the marc jacobs lot, worth maybe picking something else? yes, I agree about Gemma too!

crash division said...

I use something from Mary Kay, but what I'm really craving for, and have been for ages, is DKNY be deilicious.

♥ fashion chalet said...

Two very wonderful fragrances. My Mom adores CHANCE, I got her it for her Birthday and then again for Christmas. And her other favorite is Vera Wang. Thanks for your comment, you are always so upbeat. And I really like that! :)
